Would You Do This Trade? Josh Donaldson to the Brewers for …


While I can see the possibility of trading Donaldson, who has underperformed for what we are paying him and doesn't stay healthy, the above trade is ludicrous and makes absolutely no sense. Why would we want a broken prospect and a CF who can't hit? Bradley had 1 decent season and that's it. All he is is a late inning defensive replacement. And we don't need a center fielder (though Buxton can't stay healthy either). And who is this DeRosa who seems to know nothing.

Would I trade Donaldson, yes. 

Would I do this deal, not as suggested.  Taking back Bradley is a liability, as of today.  Would not want to include the dollars if taking Bradley and the pitcher who is a big question mark as of today.  Take out the dollars and the deal becomes ok.  Or include the dollars and get someone like the pitcher without the health question mark.

Would prefer something different, understanding that getting value back may require including some dollars.

I don’t get why this trade makes sense for the Twins but then I remembered “oh, Mark DeRosa”.

Either the Twins want to offload salary or they want to compete. This deal makes no sense for either option. 

I can’t remember the name of the former frequent commenter from New York who was a frequent advocate for trading for DeRosa. Maybe DeRosa is still butt hurt that the trade never happened.

What became of Vodka Dave? Saw little of him after the Dozier to the Dodger trade speculation.

He caught a lot of grief for his inside sources being wrong.

He can’t post because he forgot what email address he used tp sign up

He couldn’t be raucous and somebody banned him.

Got bored.

Won the lottery and is now too good for TD

All are possible reasons, but as much fun as people could have on an off day speculating, we shouldn’t here

Remember when the joke was throwing in the Brian Duensing for Mark Derosa trades back in the day. Well that makes about as much sense what Derosa proposes as those wishful deals did. No I would not do this deal and I don't see the Brewers doing it either. Would I try and conjur up something with the Giants who just lost Longoria for some considerable time, maybe on the Donaldson front I would rather get some pitching back from the Giants than do anything with the Brewers.
